RE: HYB: TB: Too many seeds

Francelle Edwards  Glendale, AZ  Zone 9

Hello, Everyone,

Space and energy problems seem to have beset many of us.  2006 must have
been a great hybridizing year for everybody except Donald.  I have three
times more seeds than I will be able to plant this fall.  I plan to
plant all from a few special crosses that I really want and twenty or
less from the rest.  I will keep the extra seeds; and. if any of the
lesser crosses prove to be good, I can plant them in subsequent years.
Next year I am going to be very particular about what crosses I
make...no spur of the moment experiments even if my planned crosses
don't take.  Do you suppose I can keep this resolution?  :-)

Hello Robins:  I, too, am having space problems.  I was reading an old
journal I keep and in 1996 I mentioned ordering some plants with the
"Where am I going to put them."  I couldn't begin to ennumerate all the
I have acquired in the 10 years since.  I have decided that from now on
I am 
only going to pollenate with one cultivar, my favorite, ELECTRIC SURGE.
also grow daylilies and have about 3,000-4,000 seeds planted in pots
which are 
rapidly germinating BUT they will be grown about a mile away by a man
in growing them.  The heat and my age have taken a toll this year and I
definitely cutting down.  This will be my last year for crossing
daylilies.  I 
have 18 PCI in pots that I will transfer this fall (originally 75).  I
about the same amount of established PCI and will probably continue to
work with 
them.  I made some PCI/Siberian crosses which resulted in seeds and have

planed them.  I have been working with PCI for about 15 years and am
learning what it takes to get them going.  Once established they seem to
stand up 
to the Texas hell where they live.
